heard it. the belief of the nra is the second amendment has to give american citizens the fire power to fight back against you. so how do you conduct your business in enforcing the law in not knowing what is behind that door? >> i find it to be scary, creepy, and simply just not based on logic. >> jennifer: it's based on fantasy and fear mongering but that never stopped the opposition before, and it is not going to now. they keep pushing the nra argument that citizens need to be completely armed to protect themselves against the tyrannical government, and not just to protect themselves from police, but also in case the police can't be there to protect them. and why wouldn't the police be there? maybe because of the budget cuts, the same budget cuts that have been pushed for before republicans across the country. here is south carolina republican senator, lindsey graham on this subject. >> the reason i'm going to oppose the legislation, chief johnson, is because i respect what you do as a law enforcement officer. has your budget been cut? >> yes. >> do you think
, those demographics mirror the nra itself. the nra's board is 87% male and 93% white. the nra's wayne lapierrre keeps insisting his group is bipartisan but take a look at this. the overwhelming majority of congress members with an "a" rating from the nra are republicans. on the other end of the spectrum, the fs are almost entirely democrats. a little sliver of red there you can barely even see it. and of course, the funding follows accordingly. 97% of nra funds went to republican in the last election. but it seems like the nra is not only not representative of the full american demographic. but data suggests that it is out of step with the rest of the country as well. on this issue of gun safety. new polls show that the majority of americans support the president's gun safety proposals. new polls out today, 85% support closing the gun show loophole. 80% prevent people with mental illness from getting guns. 55% support a ban on semi-automatic weapons. when you look, interestingly just women, it is more dramatic. it is the same all the way down the list. more women than men support a feder

be an understatement. with opposition that goes well beyond congress. a new nra tv ad calls the president an elitist hypocrite for being skeptical about armed guards in schools.while the secret service protects his two daughters. and some law enforcement officials - including this kentucky sheriff -- say they will refuse to comply with any laws they feel are unconstitutional. but the ground may still be shifting in the president's favor. a new cnn poll says 55% of americans 'do' want stricter gun control. some of the other executive orders. include one that would allow communities to hire more schoold another that d require federal law enforcement to trace all recovered guns. the n-r-a released its response in a commercial. grant lodes joins us with more on what the white house is ripping as a deeply personal attack. and the nra is referencing the president's daughters in this online ad that the n- r-a pre-emptively released yesterday. the white house pushing back, issuing a stern response to that ad: saying in part: "most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a

anything about the nra or will your efforts simply to be resist resist resist? >> well we're very interested in answering the question of how do we make schools safer for our children. as you know from the very beginning after this happened we've argued that we need two things, one, we need to get at the root of the problem, which is the broken and devastatingly broken mental health care system we have in this country because most of these people all of them in fact are people with severe mental problems. secondly we need to provide security, because we can never predict how one of these people is going to act. most of the proposals that have to do with firearms are simply feel-good proposals that have been tried in the past and won't work or won't have any real impact. the real question that needs to be addressed is not what do we do about guns it's what do we do to make our children safe. >> david, we have a new cbs news/"new york times" poll out this morning that shows 85% of nra households support background checks on all gun buyers. are you out of tou
